Emotional Distress Claims

In some types of injury cases, the focus is on the emotional harm suffered by the claimant or plaintiff. There are recognized causes of action that apply when a wrongdoer's intentional or negligent conduct causes emotional distress, but the person claiming the harm must prove a number of key elements. And in most injury cases -- slips and falls, traffic accidents, and more -- the claimant's pain and suffering is a component of recoverable damages.
